Neo-Hippie Ramblings - I'm a Non-Conformist Just Like All My Friends: People without kids...

People without kids...

... are the only ones who seem to know exactly how to raise them. Just ask.

I was in training this week with a group of people from Another Company. During a session break there was some discussion about raising kids. The one guy in the group who didn't have any kids, predictably, had a laundry list of things that HIS kids would never do or be. The rest of us just laughed at him.

Let me set the record straight, here: You cannot program a child like a VCR. They make decisions and come to conclusions on their own. You can provide feedback appropriate to their actions, set rules about what is acceptable and unacceptable, and lead by example, but you really don't 'make' them do anything.
